Charter Global Supply Lintel Shutters at Bobby Moore Sports Hub, Parsloes Park

Replacing an old sports pavilion, the new, state-of-the-art sports hub at Parsloes Park is a magnificent upgrade for the sporting community at Dagenham.

Named after the borough’s very own football legend, Bobby Moore, the £12.8m sports facility boasts sixteen grass sports pitches, two 3G pitches and a third National League System stadia pitch with spectator seating.

Pitches are named after Sir Trevor Brooking, Paul Ince and Chloe Kelly.

The bright and open sports hub includes gym facilities, a fitness studio and a café alongside a social space and meeting rooms for the local community to use.

When specifying this impressive building, where large areas of the café and community spaces have vast spans of glass windows from floor to ceiling, the Police Crime Impact Statement stipulated a requirement for security shutters of LPS 1175 SR3 standard to protect the building when closed.

Being central to a large park, anyone challenging the security would have more time before the alarm was raised, so the higher security rating, SR3, gives a longer protection time, even if there is a deliberate forced entry using a range of attack tools.

After researching the market, architects Bradshaw Gass & Hope were advised to use specialist security shutter manufacturers, Charter Global, who are experts in delivering bespoke solutions when dealing with challenging projects.

Their Integr8 SR3 lintel shutter was ideal for this project as it is engineered to integrate within the fabric of the building for a flush finish while giving excellent security protection.

A total of 24 shutters were supplied in varying sizes and a RAL colour specific to the building.

The architects were keen to complement the stunningly modern design, so bespoke shutters concealed in the lintels over windows and doors ensured a discreet, contemporary finish.

By being involved in the early stages of the project, Charter Global was able to supply and install the lintels so that unsightly fittings or hood boxes didn’t compromise the 9m span of glazing around the café and community area.

All the shutters can be independently operated, so some parts of the building can be ‘blacked’ out for events if required.

The Integr8 Structural SR3 lintel Shutter is a high-performance shutter, independently tested by the Loss Prevention Certification Board (LPCB) and certified to LPS 1175, Issue 7, SR3.

Secured by Design also recognises this shutter system as a police-preferred specification.

Manufactured from extruded aluminium, the Integr8 Structural SR3 Shutter is available with a wide range of finishes and RAL colours to suit any building style and architecture.
